Shepherd a reference librarian looked up the addresses for you in a Patterson s american education a Delegate selection j. I would like Tor you to please explain the presidential voting. We vote in the primaries and then the delegates Are selected to go to the conventions and the delegates vote for who they want to. Why should we even vote and what Good does it do and please explain the Delegate picking system. I would certainly appreciate it. Or. J a w. A the Delegate picking starts at the precinct meeting the Republican party rules allow one Delegate and one alternate from each precinct to attend the county meeting plus one Delegate for every 50 votes cast in the precinct for a Republican governor in the last election. At the Republican county convention one Delegate and one alternate Are chosen Tor the District convention plus one for every 200 votes cast in the county for a Republican governor in the last election usually those who go to the county convention go to the District one also. In the sixth congressional District convention the republicans elected 197 delegates and 197 alternates to the state convention each of the state s congressional districts is allowed three delegates and three alternates at the National convention in addition to these 33 elected in the districts the state convention elects delegates at Large and alternates to bring the total normally to 52 delegates because of the slates Republican governor and one Republican senator the Republican rules committee gave the state a Bonus of two delegates at Large state Law requires that the vote of delegates on the first ballot at the National conventions be cast in proportion to the popular vote for candidates in the primaries on successive ballots they re on their own.

Their rules require that to run As a Delegate the person must file an application with the state party that he or she is committed to a particular candidate the state party submits the names to the National organizations of the candidates who select from the list at least twice the number of delegates who could go the District conventions then select from the list of approved names the delegates they wish to represent them and they must be proportional to the popular vote cast in the presidential primary. The remaining 25 per cent of the delegation is elected at the state convention the at Large delegates and alternates also coming from the approved list and proportional to the candidates popular vote.
